Wales replace injured Jones with Evans


San Juan – A calf injury has forced loosehead prop Wyn Jones out of the Wales team to play Argentina in San Juan on Saturday in the first of a two-Test series.

Rob Evans comes off the bench to replace Jones in the starting line-up for the seventh match between the countries in Argentina with each having won three.
